Scoville Fellowship

Just in. Professor Weinberger suggests that if you are interested in this fellowship you come talk to him about which organization you might want to work with, as he has experience with many of these groups.

I am pleased to send you information about the Herbert Scoville Jr. Peace Fellowship, a program that provides college graduates the opportunity to work in Washington, DC, with a public-interest organization focusing on arms control and international security issues. The fellowship is offered twice yearly, in the spring and fall. It lasts from six to nine months and provides a stipend, health insurance, and travel costs to Washington. The Scoville Fellowship does not award grant or scholarship money to students.

Scoville Fellows may undertake a variety of activities, including research, writing, and advocacy in support of the goals of their host organization and may attend coalition meetings, policy briefings, and Congressional hearings. They have written fact sheets, letters to the editor, op-eds, magazine articles, briefing books and reports, organized talks and conferences, and been interviewed as experts by the media. Many former Scoville Fellows work for NGOs or the Federal Government, or attend graduate school in political science or international relations, following their fellowships.

Please encourage those interested in peace and security issues to visit our website at There is no application form; the application requirements are listed on the website, as are links to the websites of the participating organizations and information on the work of former Scoville Fellows. Applications may be submitted via email. A flyer about the program can be printed from The next application deadline is October 10 for the Spring 2007 Fellowship.

Both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals residing in the United States are eligible to apply.

Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding the Fellowship.
